This is the first official meeting in Lansing. The meetings will be hosted by TEKsystems. We are planning to stream the talks online. Keep up to date on Twitter and feel free to reach out for more information. Since this is a new location, we aren’t sure how many people will be attending. To ensure we have enough space, please RSVP here using eventbrite.
Learning Security The Hard Way
Benjamin Carroll (@taco_pirate) is an employee at a large utility in Michigan. Starting from modding Xbox’s at a young age, building websites in his free time, and hacking people for fun, he finally found himself in cyber security. He is now an advocate for cyber security education, as well as educating himself in every aspect of information security.
Are you a student in the cyber security field and often find yourself wondering what that transition into industry will be like? Do you feel prepared to take on the challenges of a real blue team? The answer is no, you aren’t; and I’ll tell you why. As well as what you need to do to prepare yourself.
